“Things You Can’t Do With Your Face When You Have Botox,” Starring Megan Fox
Megan Fox might have just been replaced as the spokesmodel and face of Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans by Rihanna for their 2011 and 2012 advertising campaigns and dropped from the popular Transformers movie franchise to open up a leading lady role for Victoria’s Secret lingerie model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, but the actress is out to prove that although Hollywood starlets may be poking holes in her career, no one is poking holes in her face.
After rumors of having plastic surgery and botox arose, the 25-year-old, who’s married to actor Brian Austin Green (Desperate Housewives, 90210), took to her Facebook page to publish a series of photos for her 26 million friends in an album titled, “‘Things You Can’t Do with Your Face when You Have Botox.”
Scrunching her face, raising her perfectly shaped eyebrow and pointing to wrinkles in her forehead in the images, the Jonah Hex star hoped to alleviate all doubt and convince her critics that she is a natural beauty. But not everyone believes the images are even real and now a number of doctors and experts are stating the photos look altered.
“The wrinkles that start horizontally in the middle of her forehead and curve down towards her eyebrows don’t exist in anyone,” New York plastic surgeon Dr. Nicholas Vendemia told The OC Register. “The muscles in the forehead and brow simply don’t create curved wrinkles like that. The wrinkles Megan is showing us don’t coincide with brow anatomy, nor do they match the facial expression she is making.”
“This photo is totally consistent with the wrinkle pattern you will see in someone whose Botox has begun wearing off,” plastic surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow told the The OC Register. “When you have Botox to the entire face, different parts wear off at different rates and can give you a strangish-looking pattern of wrinkles until it all wears off. I bet this photo was taken the day before her Botox appointment.”
“…The finger is way out of proportion….” said Photoshop expert Derrick Maddox as evidence of photo tampering. “The lightness and color values are off. Fake, fake, fake.”
Back in June 2010, Fox denied that she had ever had Botox in an interview with Allure. “My lips are my lips,” Fox said. “I would encourage anyone to first speak with a therapist, to try and figure out where this want comes from, because a lot of times it’s not related to your teeth or your nose or your chin. The surgery is not going to alleviate that insecurity for you. If, then, you feel, This is something that I want to do, then do it. It’s amazing that we have the technology to do the stuff that we do.”
Whether she admits to going under the knife or not, Megan Fox is still raising a few eyebrows even if she can’t raise her own.
